Hey this is my first time posting a forum topic and I hope I am in the right section.
My computer is a HP Pavilion Media Center m8120n with the video card of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 SE and an upgraded voltage supply of 1200 V I believe. The tower has also been upgraded with more fans (probably pointless to mention).
Through the years I have used my computer I was told that I was not able to upgrade my system's RAM through various technicians such as ones from A-Power and NCIX. However, I cam across the site Crucial.com and through their scan I was told that it supports 8GB. This was shocking and I am very excited to get more RAM because during games I use 97% of my 3GB RAM and 67% on just Windows 7 itself. So my first question is, is Crucial right about upgrading my hardware? Keep in mind I want to purchase up to 8GB RAM and paying 150$ for a computer I will replace in a few years doesn't seem worth it.
My second question is that can I find this type of RAM cheaper somewhere else? I tried finding these RAM on Ebay not knowing if their quality will be the same or not but I've found this. http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-8GB-4X2GB-PC2-6400-DDR2-800-800MHz-240pin-DIMM-Desktop-Memory-Low-Density-/151210059926
The recommended RAM from Crucial is this: http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=FB3FBABCA5CA7304
